Five fire crews were called to a fire at recycler’s Grantham site in the early hours of Friday morning, which local reports attribute to an electrical fault in the recycling machinery,
Five fire crews were called to the Grantham site of refrigeration recycler Environcom at 3am on Friday morning. According to the firm, the fire was put out quickly by on-site engineers and firefighters. All staff were evacuated from the site as soon as the fire was detected and there have been no injuries.
Environcom CEO Sean Feeney told the Grantham Journal: “We would like to thank the whole team including the fire brigade for responding quickly and effectively to minimise risk and loss.”
There is expected to be minimal interruption to business and the plant will be maintaining its fridge recycling capacity by diverting some customer deliveries to its fridge plant in the West Midlands for the next few weeks, the Journal reported
